Book Review: A Heart Divided

Heart Divided, A: A Novel (Heart of the Rockies)

Kathleen was born in sunny Long Beach, California, one of four daughters of a career Army officer.
As a former Army nurse with a master's degree in counseling, she has lived in Germany, Korea, Maryland, Texas, Virginia, Louisiana, Florida, Washington, D.C., Alabama, California, and Colorado. 

She is married to a retired Army helicopter pilot and is the mother of two sons-one deceased- and stepmother to another son and a daughter, both of whom have been very busy making her a grandmother.
In her free time, Kathleen likes to quilt, play the Celtic harp, and be companion and caretaker to an aging English cocker spaniel. She is also a companion and the wifely caretaker to her husband, who is not quite so aged :)

Kathleen began her career writing contemporary romances and soon moved to historical and futuristic romances. She sold her first book, a futuristic romance, in April 1990 while stationed in Korea as an Army nurse. Additional romances soon followed, until she had sold a total of fifteen books in the general market, establishing a loyal readership along the way. 

Since that time, she has received numerous awards for her work, including a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice award and Career Achievement award, and The Literary Times award for Literary Excellence in the Field of Romantic Fiction. She was also a Romance Writers of America RITA finalist.
Kathleen now focuses her writing talents in the area of inspirational fiction, offering readers characters who struggle to redefine their growing faith in everyday life.


It is 1878 and the Caldwells and Wainwrights have been feuding for decades.
Sarah Caldwell has misgivings when her father pressures her into distracting a ranch hand while he and her brothers rob the Wainwright place. When it becomes clear that hand is actually Cord Wainwright, Sarah realizes she needs to lay low. But Cord spots her in town and, with the sheriff away, makes a citizen's arrest, dragging her off to the Wainwright ranch until the sheriff's return.

As the feud boils over, Cord and Sarah make a most inconvenient discovery--they are falling in love. Can they betray their families for love? Or will their families betray them?

Against the beautiful and wild backdrop of the Rocky Mountains comes a brand new, sweeping saga of romance, betrayal, and forgiveness from beloved author Kathleen Morgan.

This is the first book in the Heart of the Rockies Series and it has started off the series with a bang!  I love the drama in this book, and the main character Sarah has quite a bit of attitude!  There are plenty of conflicting feelings in this book to keep you quite entertained as Sarah and Cord find their way in life trying to let past harsh feelings go.  As betrayal and love mix together you just can't wait to read what happens on the next page!  While reading this book you can see how faith plays a part in our life and how choosing between right and wrong can make a huge difference in your life.  This is an excellent book and I cannot wait for the next book to come out!
